XLPE Recycle Program

XLPE is an excellent material for many applications and has a long lasting shelf life. However, at end of its life cycle people do ask us how they can do with the waste and scrap pieces.

Schmitz B.V. of The Netherlands has brought their 25 years of XLPE recycling experience to the U.S., building a brand new facility in Coldwater, Michigan. Production began in September of 2017 where engineered shock pads for the sports turf industry are produced. Schmitz partners with producers and converters of XLPE foam, saving their scrap from the landfill. This provides thousands of dollars in savings for their supplier partners by eliminating disposal fees. Good for the planet, good for your bottom line.
